    Um, they have discussed the food problems on BSG before. One 1st season episode opened with Baltar giving the estimates of how much food the fleet would need to survive per month.

  2. says

    Also, I have mentioned this before, but it never made it on air…there was no food shortage in the fleet…the food supply was adequate, but it had become tainted and not edible. The problem was not the amount of food available, but that which they had, had become not fit to eat. I smell a Cylon plot.

  3. MadMexMario says

    Thanks for playing it Mike. Listening to it again I rediscovered that I can’t sing……

  4. Michael Mennenga says

    I figured I would get one complaint about it from someone… Nope. You’re safe Mario. They loved it. (Or at least it didn’t offend them enough to call in an complain) Either way, you rock! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Philip from Australia says

    I loved it, too. Though I think it desserved to be on the main showm not just the voice mail. Way to go.

    (grumbles about tallented people).

    NetFlix Profiles. Evo, Netflix will treat you right. No need to get crazy with passwords etc. Unless you want to keep watching bad teen and chick flicks??
